Third annual HOF inductees chosen: Bies, Ruffle.
Susan Schmidt Bies and John F. Ruffle have been named to the 2008 Financial Executives International Hall of Fame. They will be honored for their achievements and contributions as financial leaders when they are inducted at a black-tie event on Nov. 17, at the New York Stock Exchange. The gala will benefit the Financial Executives Research Foundation.
Bies is a former member of the Federal Reserve's Board of Governors and led the Subcommittee on Substantive Complexity of the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission's Advisory Committee on Improvements to Financial Reporting. She also serves on the boards of Zurich Financial Services and Zurich Insurance Co.
Ruffle is a former vice chairman of JPMorgan & Co. and Morgan Guaranty Trust Co. He currently serves as a director of several JPMorgan mutual funds as well as other investment funds managed by the firm. Ruffle is also a director of American Shared Hospital Services Inc. and an emeritus trustee of John Hopkins University's board of trustees.
Both Bies and Ruffle have been active FEI leaders--Ruffle as a past chairman of the organization and Bies as a former member of FEI's Committee on Corporate Reporting.
The Hall of Fame--which recognizes individuals who epitomize the performance, leadership and integrity of the most exemplary financial executives throughout their careers--has become an important tradition for the entire financial community, says James J. Abel, FEI president and CEO.
"It provides an opportunity to celebrate the leadership, excellence and accomplishments of our financial executives," he adds.
Microsoft Corp. will be the gala's premier-level sponsor with naming rights to the Hall of Fame reception. For information on sponsorship opportunities, contact Cheryl Graziano at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973.765.1064.
